William Goodchild – Conductor

Bristol Symphony Orchestra
Get the Blessing

Programme Note

Bristol Symphony welcomes international jazz four-piece, Get The Blessing, to perform a selection of their most popular tracks, newly arranged for the band and symphony orchestra in collaboration with composer and conductor, William Goodchild. Spanish and Argentinian passions run high in this programme, as music from this ‘seriously creative and wonderfully irreverent quartet’ rubs shoulders with Ravel’s Bolero, Ginastera’s Estancia and two of Piazzola’s tango masterpieces. Also included is a rare performance of Concierto de Aranjuez (Adagio) from the Miles Davis album Sketches of Spain featuring GTB’s Pete Judge on solo trumpet. This is an evening of red-hot and passionate rhythmic music at the height of summer.
